Race, Neighborhood Poverty, and Participation in Voluntary Associations.
Stoll, Michael A.
Sociological Forum, v16 n3 p529-57 Sep 2001
Data from the 1994 Los Angeles Survey of Urban Inequality (n=4,025) showed that, although neighborhood poverty influences volunteer participation, blacks participated in more voluntary associations than other groups, Asians the least. Evidence supports the ethnic community theory in that blacks in black communities participate in more organizations. (Contains 50 references.) (SK)
